Happy Axe is multi-instrumentalist and musical polymath Emma Kelly.
Stream her new single “Seven Sounds” below, or on the platform of your choice here.
On her forthcoming debut album Dream Punching, Happy Axe weaves layers of vocals, violin and musical saw into a vibrant fever dream of ambient pop music.
Listening to Happy Axe is a hypnotic experience. Deft melodies and atmospheric loops cascade and fold themselves around you. Entrancing patterns form and then dissolve.
Inspired equally by the organic sonic landscapes of artists like Björk and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, and the brooding string-laden film scores of David Lynch and Hollywood noir, Happy Axe builds sound-worlds filled with both light and shadow.
Happy Axe has performed around the world with shows throughout Japan, Norway, Germany and New York.
